Conformalizer is an audio post production tool which allows sound editors to automatically conform and rebalance Pro Tools sessions, FX lists and ADR databases to match a changed picture cut. It works by comparing picture EDLs, XML, cutlists or change notes and creating a new "change EDL" which reflects the difference between two versions of the picture. Conformalizer can then automatically conform your Pro Tools session or database file to match the new version of the cut. it also has the ability to play two versions of a cut together in order to visually compare shots or sequences.
Conformalizer supports CMX3600 EDLs, film cutlists, FCP XML interchange format and AVID change notes and has the ability to import quicktime movies to use as a reference.
The workflow is simple:
1. import the old list
2. import the new list
3. click the compare button
4. click the conform button
The program will conform a running Pro Tools session or any tab-separated or comma-separated file containing time-codes or feet+frames values.
Alternatively, you can import an AVID change note directly into the 'change' panel and use the conformalizer to conform a session or file.
The new 'block view' panel gives an easy to read overview of the difference between the two versions.
- Can use EDLs, cut-lists and FCP XML to generate the conform
- Avoids change note shortcomings with swapped/moved shots
- Gives you the ability to compare any version to any other
- Re-balancing is a piece of cake. even ADR and FX databases can be rebalanced
- Exports change notes in time-code or Feet+frames
- Compares two movies against each other and locates both movies as you check your conform
- Allows editing, creation and deletion of events
- Tracks VFX updates across versions
- Shows visually the exact difference between two frames of picture
- Graphical representation of the old and new cuts
- Ability to search for particular shots in a list of old cuts
